Now you don’t see many Z1100-R Kawasaki’s anymore, and you really don’t see many like the one I came across today, this bike is just stunning, But I will let you make your own mind up in that direction. I am hoping that maybe the owner, Giles, may drop by and tell us a little about his fantastic bike.

So yesterday (Saturday) was a Kempton Jumble, held at Kempton park racecourse at the top end of the M3.  but unlike most Kempton jumbles it rained, boy did it rain, but not all day, and although we were all a little damp, our spirits were high as we mooched about the place…

If you fancy going to one of these events, maybe to buy something or you have stuff to sell, then here is a link to the calendar of events…

If you have some old Norton parts like these lying around in your shed at home, I would love to hear from you, as I am still trying to find parts for my Norton project…

I have two pictures from this week, one is of my new alloy tank, for my Norton Clubman project, the other is a nice old Kawasaki race bike, based around an A1 Samurai frame with A7 Avenger motor…

Has new paint…

Mark has just sent me this picture of his Harris Kawasaki project, wearing the new Black paint set, sprayed by “Hutchy” The bike is really starting to look cool now, and it is time to get on with building the motor.

So, i’ve been hankering after a “proper” trick framed bike for some time now…… And as a dedicated Big Zed Kawasaki fan – when this bike turned up I just had to go for it. Its been sat around, just cobbled together very roughly, for some years. Consisting of a nice green Harris Magnum 1 frame & alloy tank, seat unit, Ducati 916 complete rear end, GSXR1100 USD front end, KZ1000A1 motor & carbs + box of bits; rear sets, clocks, shox, electrics, etc..

Right then  – as you know the Harris is all about HANDLING – so I shall not be tweaking the motor too much, I’ve a set of slightly “lumpier” cams and some VM29 smoothbore Mikuni’s. So far I’ve sold the GSXR USD front end and the Ducati 916 rear end – as they are the usual suspects for modded bikes  My plan is to keep it looking a bit more Old Skool. I have a ZZR1100 RWU front end and have tracked down a loverly JMC, double braced swing arm, and some 17″
DYMAGS.

I dropped by my local garage on saturday morning, just to have my K100-Rs checked over, to make sure all was well, as it is now all road legal. And while there, they had a nice Kwaka smoker on the bench….

Saturday morning started with the sun beating through the bedroom curtains, so I dragged myself from the pit, a quick wash and freshen up, and I headed out to get the Z1b from my lockup. It was warm in the August sun, so I went for the open face helmet and tee-shirt look, and headed out-of-town on the quiet back roads, in the direction of the Four Horseshoes, to see what bikes would come out to play in the sun.
